Westside Skydivers is still here in the beautiful town of Winsted, MN but for those of you wishing for a longer season - come find us in Houston - our second location opening November 9th, 2012!
We are proud to say that we are the only skydiving center in the country to offer our awesome customers a choice in alititude: jump from 13K, 18K, and 24K! The reason is simple – we kept hearing over & over again – "I wish freefall lasted longer." Well now it can!
We get many questions on the high altitude jumps, most commonly, "Can I go higher my first time?" The answer is YES! You will be with one of our USPA professional instructors who take the utmost care to ensure your safety. Our airplane has onboard oxygen which you breathe on the way up to saturate your system! So all you first timers – come on get higher with a jump from 18k, or join the ranks of the elite military and go where few others have gone before – JUMP FROM 24 THOUSAND FEET!
With beautiful views of Winsted Lake and Lake Minnetonka your skydiving experience is sure to be, by far, the most picturesque skydive in the state of MN and western WI. We are located just 40 miles from Minneapolis and just 30 miles from the western suburbs. Our aircraft is a Cessna Grand Caravan – with a competition size door, carrying 17 jumpers to altitude - so jump with more of your friends! Our clubhouse is now complete and can be rented for large groups. Camping is now also available!
Don't worry – you still get to deploy the parachute & wear an altimeter on every skydive with Westside. Each jump you make will count toward certification – even tandems!
You may book your tandem or buy gift certificates online (If you have purchased a Groupon you must call to schedule). We also have an online store – regret not buying that t-shirt? Now you can buy it anytime!
The Winstead dropezone will be operating this winter weekends only - call for availability and weather! Otherwise the big airplane returns mid-April - check back to see the list of calendar updates!
I would once again like to thank all of our wonderful family, friends, staff – and most importantly our loyal CUSTOMERS for making this journey happen. Things keep taking off!
